5 Reasons Why Women Need To Focus More On Fitness!

ladies fitnessHey ladies, I need to break things down for your just a little. Women tend to be avoiding being in shape and end up being in worse shape than men. Why is this? Well, we are going to walk through this and break down why women are not getting in better shape.

Women aren’t all guilty for making mistakes, and men even do the same thing. However, when it comes to fitness, you can’t just put your feet in the water; you have to jump it and go full steam. Results aren’t gained by only doing one eight of the work; we all need to give it everything to see improvement!

1. Women Don’t Do Enough Of The Right Cardio

Women, you may be guilty of doing cardio, which actually doesn’t give your body the challenge it needs. Forget the 20 minutes of cardio on an average setting and do intervals that are going to kick your booty and shape it faster as well. Try doing anywhere from 10-15 minutes on a high level for 1 minute straight and cut half that intensity for two. Doing this will burn more fat, kick start your metabolism and get muscles working harder.

2. Women May Be Talking To Much

Men are also guilty of this too! Get in and get out, the gym is no place to be talking about what you did on the weekend with your buddies. That’s what Facebook or a bar is for! Shorter rest periods equal better workouts, take care of your business and get in and out to eat and recover with proper nutrition.

3. Women May Be Not Eating Enough Protein

Many women are guilty of eating too many carbohydrates such as comfort foods that are baked, can’t forget that protein. Does protein taste bad? Simply eat more meat and veggies that are higher in protein like broccoli and asparagus. Put down that cupcake and chocolate and eat some nuts!

4. Women May Be Using Enough Weight

Really, is that 5-pound weight you are lifting going to even tone any muscle? Try doing more challenging moves that work your body and use your own body weight. Do pull ups, chin ups, dips and box jumps. This will carve some muscle and tone your entire body!

5. Not working out enough 

Workout classes are not going to keep you fit if you do them twice a week, step up the workouts and go at least four days a week and go running at last twice a week. Commitment to fitness is about changing lifestyle and doing less of the activities that promote unhealthy choices.

5 Reasons Your Muscles Aren’t Working During Your Workout!

Feeling muscle fatigue or just not getting the workout you want? There may be several reasons why your workout performance is lacking without your knowledge. Your muscles aren’t working the way you want them to because they haven’t been properly tweaked for a workout!

Muscles respond less to your workouts for many reasons, and it’s great to learn why so that you can assess your fitness constantly improver. There is nothing worse than trying to get a great workout when your body refuses to respond to the workout. Follow these items and learn how to maybe tweak your approach by getting your muscles to respond better to your workouts.

Reason 1 – Not Enough Nutrition

You might not be eating sufficient meals during the day or not enough protein. Keep track of how much you are eating and ensure that you get enough protein in your diet if you are a very active person who likes to work out. Use the protein calculator to find how much protein you need to be getting every day.

Reason 2 – Too Much Nutrition

There is such a thing as eating too much and not letting your body absorb the right nutrients. If you eat to much of the same foods and not enough variety, especially of the veggie kinds, this may be your problem. In order for your muscles to work effectively they need quality nutrients, so how many servings of vegetables are your getting each day?

Reason 3 – Routine Failure

So you are not following a routine or have started one and fallen off the wagon by forgetting it. This is what happens to many people, if you forget to track your results, you will never be able to monitor how much you are doing, which might be the reasons why your muscles are not responding.

Reason 4 – Muscle Fatigue

Your muscles simply are tired, and may need to just need some time off. This is very common, people tend to overdue working out often without their knowledge. Keep your workout time limited and do. What is reasonable for your lifestyle and fitness level? Work out hard enough to get results, but let your body and mind get the extra rest if you notice yourself not getting through your workouts easily.

Reason 5 – Lack Of Challenge

Your muscles might have simply gotten used to the same workout moves and exercises, try adding something new to the mix. Do more multi-functional moves that use your own body weight for resistance. Do more pull-ups, chin ups and moves where you are required to balance like the one-legged squat…
